Butchery robbed of N$250 000

25 April 2018 | Police And Crime

Three men are on the run after an armed robbery in front of a Khomasdal butchery on Friday evening, which netted N$250 000 in cash.

The police have opened a case of armed robbery after a 30-year-old man left the Rand Street Butchery just after 18:00 and placed the cash on the front passenger seat of his car.

While he was getting ready to start the vehicle, three unknown men armed with a pistol emerged from a silver Toyota Corolla with no number plates, stormed towards the car, grabbed the money, a laptop and a cellphone and sped off.

No arrests have been made.

The police are also investigating two cases of drug possession following arrests in Rehoboth on Friday and on Saturday.

On Friday three suspects - aged 13, 18 and 29 - were arrested in front of the Royal entertainment block in Rehoboth for being possession of illegal substances.

The police confiscated 15 full mandrax tablets, four half tablets and seven quarter tablets.

In addition, they confiscated 31 “ballies of pure cannabis” and N$795 in cash.

On Saturday the police confiscated 250 “bankies of skank” valued at N$16 000 and arrested a 17-year-old girl.

Meanwhile, a case of rape is being investigated by the police in Grootfontein, after a man allegedly raped a teenager in the veld near Otjivanda Secondary School at 14:00 on Tuesday.

The police say the suspect approached the 17-year-old survivor and forced her into nearby bushes, where he raped her.

The suspect is unknown to the victim and has not yet been arrested.

In a separate incident, a case of murder is being investigated by the police in the Omaheke Region.

On Saturday between 23:00 and 23:45 at Freedom Square in Epako, Gobabis an unidentified man was stabbed with a sharp object on the forehead and chest. He died instantly.

The suspect has not been arrested and investigations continue.

Another murder case was opened in Wanaheda, after a 28-year-old man was stabbed with an unknown object in the chest during a fight with a 33-year-old suspect.

The suspect was later arrested, after he had fled. The motive for the murder is not yet known.
